Alesis has unveiled the new Nitro Max electronic drum kit which they describe as an eight-piece kit centered around next-generation Alesis mesh drumhead technology. A spokesperson told us, "Pairing explosive sound quality with ultra-quiet external operation, this is the ideal kit for any beginner-to-intermediate drummer looking for a realistic, responsive playing experience in a compact set that is easy to transport, set up, and store."
Here's more details direct from Alesis...
Whether practicing, creating, or recording, the Nitro Max includes a range of features to suit players of any genre or style. Perfect for honing your skills, this kit includes Bluetooth connectivity for seamless play-along from Spotify, Apple Music, and other services. It also includes 400 professionally designed drum sounds from software industry leader BFD and three months of premium access to Drumeo, the world's largest online platform for drumming tuition and practice
The Ultimate Companion in Digital Percussion
The Nitro Max kit has a large 10" dual-zone mesh snare drum, a kick drum tower, and three (3) 8" mesh toms. It comprises a complete drum kit consisting of three (3) 10" cymbals, custom-designed Alesis hi-hat pedal and kick pedal, and a durable four-post aluminum rack. Also included is all the cabling, the power supply, sticks, and the drum key. It all connects to the Nitro Max electronic drum module, which has 440 drum and percussion sounds, 40 drum kits, and 60 built-in play-along tracks. The Nitro Max drum module includes the convenience of Bluetooth as well as a built-in cradle to hold your tablet or smartphone, which makes learning with Drumeo or Melodics--or simply playing along with your music--even more accessible.
Nitro Max exclusively includes three months of access to Drumeo, the world's biggest online drum education platform. Drumeo provides step-by-step lessons from over 200 of world's best drummers and over 5,000 hit songs to learn: the original recordings by everyone from Nirvana to N.W.A. To master these tracks, songs can be sped up and slowed down, and drum parts can be removed altogether, allowing the drummer to play with the rest of the band. Plus, there's unlimited personal support and an online community of over three million players to help budding drummers achieve their goals.
Nitro Max also comes with 60 free lessons from Melodics, the app that uses innovative practice tools to help you to develop your skills.

"The previous Nitro Mesh Kit was extremely popular around the world" says Director of Product Management John Boudreau. "The Alesis mesh drumheads were a huge leap forward--drummers loved them as their responsiveness made them incredibly playable, but their quietness was perfectly suited to home use. With Nitro Max, we've held on to the things people value in the mesh heads, but added a new larger snare; even better sounds; Bluetooth so you can practice along to streaming services; and a huge additional offering of 90 days of free lessons with Drumeo, practice tools with Melodics, and the BFD Software player for connecting Nitro Max to your Mac or PC. We're very happy to be able to deliver all this to Nitro Max users."
